4 stars The year after releasing the beautiful "Yellow Fields" bass extraordinaire Eberhard Weber is back with "Silent Feet". Same lineup except for on the drum kit where John Marshall (NUCLEUS, SOFT MACHINE) replaces Jon Christensen. Charlie Mariano (EMBRYO, SUPERSISTER) is back playing sax and flute. I do prefer this one over "Yellow Fields", I just find it more dynamic and interesting.

We get three long tracks beginning with the side long "Seriously Deep". It takes a while but eventually piano and sax lead the way tastefully then the drums join in. We get bass and drums only before 4 1/2 minutes then the piano joins in as well. The sax is back 6 minutes in. Some intensity around 10 minutes as the sax and drums impress. I really like the electric piano too. It settles back 11 1/2 minutes in then kicks in again around 14 minutes. Marshall is his usual amazing self after 15 minutes.

"Silent Feet" is led by bass and piano early then drums arrive after 1 1/2 minutes. It picks up a minute later. The piano is fantastic here. A calm just before 6 minutes as the sax comes in and leads then it picks back up. A calm 8 1/2 minutes in then it starts to pick up again a minute later. Nice "Eyes That Can See In The Dark" opens with atmosphere and flute. Sparse piano and bass come in after 2 minutes. Sax and sounds build before 4 minutes then the piano leads before 6 minutes. Nice bass and drum work too. The sax replaces the piano 8 minutes in. It settles after 11 minutes to end it.

Such a classy, well played recording in the ECM tradition. Marshall really impressed me too.
